The Domino State released their critically acclaimed debut album Uneasy Lies the Crown on their own Exhibition Records imprint in August 2010. The album was recorded at Treacle Studios, East London and produced by Joe Adams (Radio Academy award winner 2013 - best live music producer).

The band's second single 'Firefly' was picked up instantly by iTunes and placed on their 'what's hot' compilation featuring their pick of the latest UK releases. It was also that week's 'hottest download' in The Sunday Times. Uneasy Lies the Crown was a featured iTunes alternative album and spent several weeks in the iTunes UK alternative album chart.

The Domino State have opened for Coldplay at the O2 Arena and toured with M83, Longview and The Boxer Rebellion. They have appeared twice at Glastonbury, as well as other major UK festivals including Bestival, Summer Sundae Weekender and Beautiful Daze.

They have received worldwide airplay, including the UK (BBC, XFM , NME Radio, Kerrang Radio, BFBS Radio), Germany (Motor FM, Radio Fritz, NDR Radio), USA (Britsound Radio), Italy (Radio Citta Aperta), Peru (Kool Rock Radio), and have been Steve Lamacq's BBC6 rebel playlist winners.

The band have now finished their long awaited second album which they hope to release late 2014/early 2015. Please get in contact at if you would like to hear a copy. In the meantime there are a few tracks below to get you started.
